Torrance PBF Refinery for M.B. Herzog:
At the Torrance Refinery, M.B. Herzog is still on schedule to man up for turnrounds and preventive maintenance this summer. At PBF Refinery – Torrance the RSO20 and TWIC Card is a requirement to take a call. M.B. Herzog plans to start putting in manpower requests in May for turnaround work which is scheduled to begin this summer. Herzog will be calling out apprentices, journeymen and certified instrumentation technicians. If you enjoy the industrial work in the refineries, be ready to man these very nice refinery calls.
Turnaround work continues for a few of our companies at the P66 Refinery in Wilmington. It is winding down a bit and the current turnaround will possibly be completed in about a month. Following this completion, P66 will issue more work for turnarounds this summer and more preventive maintenance work for Cal Spectra, Schultz Mechanical and Contra Costa Electric. All of these great contractors will be looking to put in more calls for manpower this summer.

Marathon Carson and Wilmington:
Schultz Mechanical is going to be putting in a lot of calls for journeymen/journeywomen and apprentices for long-term project work.

World Energy Refinery – Paramount:
Newtron Electric is currently getting the initial demolition phase of the construction work going at the New World Energy Refinery Project in Paramount. This is the old Paramount Petroleum Refinery which is now owned by World Energy and is being converted into a “clean fuels” refinery. The refinery will no longer use crude oil to refine; rather, it will refine vegetable oil and animal fat. The new refinery will make the vegetable and animal fat into clean biodiesel fuel and clean burning jet fuel.
Newtron Electric will be placing many more calls for journeymen/journeywomen and apprentices for the project. Newtron Electric will also need instrumentation technicians later, when they get into the construction phase of the project.
Cal. Spectra Electric has a small portion of work within the New World Energy Refinery and will be looking to bring on approximately 20 journeymen/journeywomen along with apprentices for Cal. Spectra’s portion of this long-term project.
Once again, please make sure you have a current RSO 20 and a current TWIC Card to be able to take a call out to these Refineries.
The RSO20 is now being offered at the ETI. Please get signed up at the ETI for the RSO20 course so all our members can take a call out to our refineries. Some of our refineries will also require the TWIC as well, so please get the TWIC as well. There are full reimbursements and stipends with both of these requirements. To receive the reimbursement and stipend, please bring the RSO card with a current dues receipt, and proof of payment of the course to any dispatch window. This is the same for the TWIC card.
